PEARL JAM GUITARIST TO PERFORM WITH SEATTLE SYMPHONY

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready will perform this January at Seattle's Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony, according to Guerilla Candy. The guitarist will be taking part in a series called "Sonic Evolution," which is being curated by the orchestra's music director Ludovic Morlot. The series brings musicians from local pop, rock and hip-hop acts together with the symphony to collaborate and create different perspectives on the music itself.

The January 30th performance starring McCready and the Seattle Symphony will feature orchestral versions of songs from acts like Pearl Jam, Nirvana and other Seattle bands that defined the "grunge" era of the early '90s.

The most recent concert in the series found the symphony playing an orchestral rendition of "Baby Got Back" with rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot.

Pearl Jam will hit the road this fall for a 12-city tour that will include the band's appearance at the Austin City Limits Festival in Texas. The trek kicks off on October 1st in Cincinnati, wrapping up on the 22nd in Denver.

The band is still promoting its 10th studio album, Lightning Bolt, which came out last year.
